Abstract :
In this study of Dryden's 1694 poem 'To Sir Godfrey Kneller,' Gelineau focuses on how Dryden uses Kneller as a figure who mirrors William III's political world and all that is wrong with it. The poem is addressed to Kneller as well as to the culture at large in an attempt to make both realize how the realm of art, as discussed by Dryden primarily through the subject of imitation in the sister arts (poetry and painting), could present two different ideological standards of value and meaningfulness: one represented by Dryden and ostensibly Kneller; and one represented by William's England, which is described in the poem as in a state of cultural degeneration and which Dryden shows Kneller to be implicated in. ;
